Bright Ideas: Autumn’s Top Cycling Gear

We’ve come a long way since the days of “hi-vis” being limited to the neon yellow vest. Advances in fabric technology and electronics have opened up a whole new wave of bright ideas in urban cycling. Here’s our pick of the best cycling gear for Autumn to keep you safe and seen this fall.

Lumos Helmet

Winner of the Eurobike 2016 GOLD Award, the Lumos smart helmet integrates lights, hard brake, turn signals, and helmet into one. Not only are there super bright rear and front LEDs lining the helmet, but a wireless handlebar mountable remote automatically activates the brake lights on slow down and allows you to control the amber turn signal lights . Plus as tried and tested at Hiplok HQ – the certified helmet is super comfortable!

See Sense ICON Rear Light

In Autumn, high visibility isn’t only for riding at night. With the sun lower in the sky and the usual greyness in the weather, you need to stay visible whatever the time of day. Not only can the seriously bright 190 lumen See Sense light be seen up to 2km away at night, it is also designed to be daylight visible with twin CREE LEDs. Plus it contains a sensor which reacts by flashing brighter in different environments such as when approaching roundabouts and road junctions. Oh, and did we mention it’s fully waterproof and has a run time of 15 hours? The future is bright!

Altura are well known for their quality, well-designed yet affordable cycling clothing. Their new NIGHTVISION waterproof jacket uses the brand’s DARKPROOF fabric technology which is invisible during the daylight but turns ultra reflective in low light conditions.

Huez Moonrider Gilet

We’ve long been fans of uber cool British brand, Huez. This season, the Moonrider Gilet has caught our eye – literally! As with all Huez gear, this gilet is top of the pile for style and performance – beautifully cut with super lightweight yet wind and waterproof fabric. But it’s the texture of the fabric with it’s small dimples designed to reflect light at almost every conceivable angle that makes this piece of kit stand out (and you stand out on the roads). 


To keep rider and bike safe, the Hiplok SUPERBRIGHT is the only fully reflective bike lock designed to be worn. With Hiplok’s patented belt like fastening, meaning the Sold Secure rated chain adjusts to the body and is never locked when worn, the SUPERBRIGHT series features an ultra-reflective high visibility water repellent sleeve.
